Sketchy rumor claims Galaxy S9 to retain old design

In the next few months, Samsung is expected to release its next generation flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 8. While fans and consumers alike are expecting the phone, a new rumor points to the design of the Galaxy S9.

At the moment, it is still quite early to be talking about specifics of the Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, it is possible that the phone might sport a Snapdragon 836 rather than an 845. That said, Qualcomm has presented some documents in its legal battle with Apple about its upcoming application processor. In the said document, the Snapdragon 845 was seen listed in one of the company’s patent filings.
